They also predict whether the information could have leaked from the unmanned device.
An Israeli Army Drone in July fell to the ground in Lebanese territory as a result of a technical problem.In February a similar incident occurred in Lebanon during a military operation on the border, and a drone was also lost over Lebanon in August of 2020. Lebanon’s Shi’ite Hezbollah militia movement claimed to have downed and recovered the unmanned aircraft near the border.
Rani Avni, deputy head of the company’s autonomous systems division said that it is operated by an electronic tablet and can be equipped with two machine guns, cameras and sensors. The new device can collect intelligence for ground troops, carry injured soldiers and supplies in and out of battle, and attack nearby targets.
